Queen Latifah's Refusal To Talk About Her Personal Life On New Show Discussed On The Rubin Report

Posted: Updated:

Queen Latifah's refusal to address long-standing rumors about her private life on her highly-anticipated new talk show was debated at length on The Rubin Report this week.

Host Dave Rubin was joined by YouTube's Shanna Malcolm and SiriusXM's Sam Roberts to discuss the issue at length.

Calling Queen Latifah's decision "highly problematic," Malcolm noted, "It's very different when you start out as an Oprah WInfrey, who started out as a reporter...where it's a little bit more detached. [Your guests] should know you, and feel like they can talk to you."

Roberts added, "Why don't we learn from history: it drove Rosie [O'Donnell] insane -- literally insane -- that she had to go on and pretend to be in love with Tom Cruise...and not be herself on The Rosie Show ... People like it when people are being themselves."
